From all over my flist:

Look to your right. Whatever object you see there is your designated weapon in the upcoming Zombie Apocalypse! Comment on this post to tell me what it is, then repost to spread the zombie virus.

The first time I saw this meme, the thing to my right was a pile of silk skirts. I'm not sure what good strangulation is on something that doesn't need to breathe, but there you go.

The second time, the thing to my right was a stuffed hippogriff. Not so much with the useful. But a real, live hippogriff? That would be an awesome zombie-fighting tool/companion. Slashing damage, puncture damage, and a quick getaway! More zombie hunters need hippogriff companions, says I.

The third time, the thing to my right was a printer. I suppose I could throw it at 'em.

And now it's a cup of coffee, which... well, I guess useful for those long nights one must spend awake because if one drifts off the zombies will break past the defenses? Or alternately you could invite the zombie hordes to sit down with you over a cup of joe and work out a way to live together in harmony. (As we all know, coffee in sufficient quantities is a passable substitute for brains, after all.)

How about you?

I've been feeling quite low recently (nothing particularly wrong, just busy, stressed, a little sick, irritable, and having to deal with the dentist), and then I remembered this meme floating around, which I don't think I've done and which seemed a good productive way to cheer self up.

1. Post about something that made you happy today even if it's just a small thing.
2. Do this every day for a week without fail.
3. Tag 8 of your friends to do the same. (I don't do tagging. Tag yourself, if the spirit moves you; if not, don't.)

So what am I happy about?

* Went, for the first time, to a nifty ramen place in the International District -- Samurai Noodle. I tried their pork broth ramen (the standard comes with slices of pork, mushrooms, and green onions, as well as the requisite noodles and broth; [ profile] jmpava got the add-on that adds bamboo, nori, and a seasoned egg), and it was exceptionally good.
* Then we went to Uwajimaya, where I got a new food to play with -- fresh sardines, which I've never cooked before. (I've only had the tinned kind.) They're curing downstairs, and hopefully will be tasty. I love trying new foods.
* In the interest of not making this entirely about food: The sky outside the window is very beautiful, all shades of blue and grey and faint lavender.
* My cats have been absolutely adorable and very friendly today.

What's made you happy today?

I'm a little afraid to post this, especially publicly, but I'll take the risk!

Via many people, but I think [ profile] yhlee first:

- Describe me in one word--just one single word. Positive or negative.

- Leave your word in a comment, before looking at what words others have used.

- Copy and paste the meme to your journal to find out how people describe you when limited to one word. [Totally optional!]

Haven't posted a quiz result in a while, but this made me smile. I can't imagine it's accurate -- hell if anybody admires my fashion sense! -- but it was fun.

I've done this meme before, like, twice? But I really like it, so again (ganked from [ profile] gwyneira this time):

1. Open your music collection and set the songs to shuffle/random.
2. Take the first 25 and write the first line or two from each. [In addition to skipping instrumentals for obvious reasons, I did skip things without English lyrics, and I only did one song per artist.]
3. Have people guess the songs.
4. Strike them out as people guess.

It actually wound up being not a bad cross-section of my musical taste, serendipitously.

...but this one is kinda cool.

You aren't even a teenager yet!
Your hearing rules! You're either quite young or you've looked after your ears.

This one was just too good to pass up.

take the WHAT BAD BOOK ARE YOU test.

and go to not as good as reading a good book, but way better than a bad one.

Huh. I actually liked Beowulf. (Which is why I refused to go see the new movie version, Neil Gaiman or not. Sexy mother-of-Grendel in stiletto heels but no clothes? Throwing over the original ethical basis for the plot -- which is deliciously alien -- for a standard sexual-sin-and-penance daddy plot? No thank you.)

Sill, I am amused.
